As a person of Caribbean descent if I knew what I knew now I wouldn’t have stopped running when I did in my younger years but to know that in my mature years the competitors that I’ve lined up have and will compete in the world championships the olympic trials and possibly the Olympics feels good. I ve seen the Penn relays and seen the depth of Jamaican youth talent but the young men aren’t visable since bolt left what’s going on?
